Singapore Airlines has a transfer bonus on now for 15% added on top of your transfer. Rather than being added by the bank, it will be added by Singapore when the transfer is complete.
You’ll get the bonus at the same time the point conversion posts, as long as you transfer by December 27, 2020.
Transfers from Chase, Capital One, American Express, Citi, and Brex all count in the United States.
Note, importantly, that Singapore KrisFlyer miles expire after 3 years. You cannot extend that with activity. And the main reason to use the KrisFlyer program is to book First or Business long haul award space on Singapore’s own planes (since they don’t release to partners).
Outside of using for Singapore flights, like the First Class Singapore Suites, the program lost a lot of luster in its latest devaluation. There really aren’t many ways to use KrisFlyer for partners that you couldn’t just book via another Star Alliance carrier for less miles. One semi-sweet spot is for booking transcon business class flights on United for 23,000 miles (vs 35,000 on United directly, though not as good as 12,500 Turkish miles using Citi ThankYou points.
For a 15% bonus, I 1,000% do NOT advise a speculative transfer. And if you transfer any at all, you may be better off waiting until Dec 1 to get the extra month of expiry on the back end just in case. Still, if you have something to book now, it’s worth knowing about.
